Despite being behind the PS4 in total global sales, Microsoft’s Xbox division is seeing good returns. In its Q4 financial report, it was revealed that total revenue for the console rose by 27 percent. First party sales, Xbox Live digital transactions and platform sales all contributed to the growth.

Meanwhile, combined sales of the Xbox 360 and Xbox One were at 1.4 million during this fiscal quarter as compared to 1.1 million during the same period in 2014. The overall platform revenue is up 10 percent though this is offset by the price cuts that the Xbox One has received over the past few months.

Microsoft overall suffered an operating loss of $2.1 billion (due in part to the restructuring that occurred regarding Nokia) though its Computing and Gaming Hardware division – which includes devices like Surface and Xbox – increased in revenue by 44 percent. Minecraft, which Microsoft acquired last year, has also helped first party revenue increase by 62 percent year on year for $63 million during this fiscal quarter.

    Microsoft is still hiding their Xbox One losses/profits. More lies from Microshaft.

      John derp I’d ask you where the Sony profits were but turns out there are none :^)

    • XbotMK1

      They made a profit. Sony and Nintendo also tell investers and consumers when thy post profits or losses.

    • *Also On PC

      $8 billion in losses on the PS3 and only one profitable quarter in the last year.

      Poor John Derp believing in a company resorting to kickstarter they are running out of money so fast :^)

      How is this lying? That would imply they said something that isn’t true. This is not a example of lying. The truth is that revenue for the Xbox division thanks to increase sales of consoles, increase subscription of Xbox Live and first party game sales such as Minecraft. They are talking to investors, not fanboys scrambling to find negativity.

      Why are they hiding the losses/profits of their Xbox division? It’s because Microsoft is lying. Withholding the truth to intentionally misslead people is still as bad as lying.

    • doplerradar

      It isn’t misleading. All they say is that Microsoft lost money (mainly because they spent a lot of money restructuring their phone division but that should turn around when they release Windows 10) and that the Xbox division saw increase sales and revenue. That is all you need to know. The information is for investors. It is not for fanboys scrambling around for bad news. So don’t waste your time trying to find something wrong with that. Just enjoy whatever console and PC you play on and don’t waste your time telling others what to buy.

    • *Also On PC

      John Derp you claimed the POS4 had powerful hardware and yet it struggles with 30FPS so therefore you are a liar :^)

    And once again, Microsoft outshining Sony, not like it’s a surprise.
